Reviewing the loose version here, but I've got a 10-bag sampler pack too, and don't notice any appreciable difference between them in terms of aroma or flavor. This is another among numerous green-black tea blends Murchie's makes (in this case also with roses, cornflowers and jasmine). They largely have mastered what apparently is a difficult art of green-black tea blending and flavoring, it seems, based on the body of results from them all.

If you are planning a wedding and decide to use this tea, I doubt guests would complain, and most likely would like it, especially for its uncommon flavor blend.

Given the presence of the red and blue flowers, which are visually striking in loose-leaf form, I was surprised the dry-bag/dry-leaf and in-cup aromas weren't stronger. Still, they were pleasant, and definitely gave off all the stated essences: jasmine, floral, and of course, tea. The fruity element came out more in the aftertaste and the back of the throat, whereas the jasmine was more up-front, lending a chameleon-like performance to the chugging experience (in a pleasant way). The aftertaste does linger quit a bit, more in the bagged tea than the loose, but that's about the only difference I could tell between them. The tea blend itself is fairly smooth and creamy, slightly astringent, not really bitter at all. This is not the very best of their blends to me, since I think it could be a notch stronger all around, but still is solid in quality and well worth ordering if you like floral/fruity flavored-tea combinations. The somewhat delicate nature and complexity of this blend might tickle the fancy of more-refined tea connoisseurs than I.
